Film festival devoted to North Korean human rights

No Chain - The Association of North Korean Political Victims & Their Families - will hold its first film festival focused on North Korean human rights.

The “Biit Festival” will feature twelve productions including shorts and documentaries. The festival will also invite North Korean guest speakers for discussion panels, one of which will include an appearance by North Korea defector, Gim Gyu-min, who is a film director.

Jung Gwang-il, founder and executive director of No Chain said, “We are very honored and excited to partner with our co-hosts and co-sponsors from South Korea, the United States, Canada and Europe, to bring these films to the general audience […] By shedding light on this issue and raising awareness through documentaries and films, we hope to generate interest and help bring about the end of the darkness in North Korea.”

The festival held its premiere on Monday in Washington, D.C, and it will continue its run until next week. For the festival schedule and other details, visit the Facebook page www.facebook.com/biitfestival.
